Welcome to the forum!  I took your post out of the INTRODUCTIONS area and put it into the GENERAL discussion area for now since you did not say what software you are using to build your website.

Sure.  The WHOLE site is an Ask Sami!  :yes:  The tutorials throughout samisite.com were made in response to questions people have asked on this forum and the GlobalSCAPE CSB forum.

By posting on the forum, you are getting to me AND better yet, you get access to other experienced users of CSB and other web building software.

You can check with your host to do one of two things:
1) have them reset the account to empty, to start from scratch.  Most are willing to do this upon request.   OR:
2) have your host tell you which files/folders are the standard basic setup for the account and then YOU can use an FTP software to connect to your host and grab files, delete them.  Read about using an FTP program here. Simple to do.  You can remove .htm, .html files, images, etc..  Just avoid the folders/files they gave you originally (cgi-bin, etc). 


As to the POPUP window.....NAH... You don't want to do that.   :noshake:
Instead, go low-tech and simple and avoid problems with popup blockers. Make a new index.htm page (home page) that says Thanks for visiting.  The site is down until (date), please check back...etc  Upload the page to your site to replace the existing home page.

WARNING:  You may lose your ranking on search engines.  If you have incoming links from websites that send visitors to pages that NO LONGER EXIST the search engines will pull your rankings down.  If you are on a LINUX server, you can make a file (.htaccess) that redirects all your incoming traffic to your new temporary home page so all the links will not be broken....
